Love Has An Army
Poverty is an everyday battle that families don’t always win. But people experiencing poverty are not without hope. They have an army of loving people like you who fight on their behalf. Your generosity puts food on their table, presents under their tree, and joy in their hearts.
Meet the Army behind The Army
Every Christmas season, The Salvation Army relies on the help of thousands of compassionate volunteers, staff members and donors to help us meet the greatest needs in our community. They are the Army behind The Army.
Some are volunteer bell ringers who stand in the cold to raise money and spread cheer. Others are Salvation Army officers who wake up before dawn to make sure our red kettles are ready to go. Still others are volunteers who help share the joy of Christmas at Salvation Army Toy Shops. All of these people choose to make a difference, no matter how small. They choose to fight for good.

Join the Fight for Good
Do something meaningful this Christmas season by joining The Salvation Army in the fight for good. Here are four simple ways to help:
- Become a recurring donor. The fight for good takes place all year long. By becoming a recurring donor, you will help meet the year-round needs of even more people struggling with poverty.
- Recruit your own army. The fight for good needs soldiers. Recruit others to help raise money by setting up your own online fundraiser at FundraiseForGood.org.
- Donate at a red kettle or online. Fight poverty one dollar at a time by giving each time you pass a red kettle. Or, support your local Salvation Army through an online donation.
- Become a volunteer bell ringer. Join the fight against poverty by giving your time as a red kettle bell ringer. The money you raise will support our poverty-fighting programs.
